European Style tack/clothes

Hi,
I'm new to the forum and wasn't sure where to post this. I've always liked more of the European style english riding tack and clothes, (tweed hacking jackets, show jackets with velvet collars, shirts with ties, vests, and I love black leather saddles) I have no idea where to get any of that stuff here in North America and and to order it from Europe it's 10 times the price by the time it gets here. Does anyone know the proper names for any of the clothes so I can search it on Ebay? I type in riding vest and I get a lot of winter vests and stuff, and I don't know what the show shirts with ties are called. Also, I can't seem to find plaid english saddle pads anywhere. Anyone know of some good websites???

I've been looking for a plaid english pad for a while, too. My TB would look very handsome in one.

Heres a couple attractive ones I've found that don't look like they're meant for children.

Wither Relief English All Purpose Saddle Pad by Crump | eBay
Plaid Saddle Pad | eBay
Dura Tech Devon All Purpose Saddle Pad - The Carousel Horse
Lettia Baker Plaid Tartan with Navy Trim All Purpose Saddle Pad NEW on eBay!

^^^Really like the last one.

I know exactly what vests you are talking about, also. Theres a local tack store near me who has a few and I would honestly love one to wear for a few pictures with my horse.

Heres a couple of the tweed jackets, VERY expensive though.

Ralph Lauren Women's Wool Tweed Leather Equestrian Horse Riding Blazer Jacket 6 | eBay
Vintage Harris Tweed Hunter Green Classic Jacket Sport 38 39R Wool Scottish | eBay


I'm sure if you go into any english tack store, they will have equestrian ties, also.
I'm quite a fan of this style, but I spend FAR too much on my horses to spend all of this just to look fancy when in the end I'll be sweaty, dirty, and covered in horse poop.

Its interesting because the things they use in France for riding is the same as what we use here, in fact they usually order online or buy tack here on our american continent. I am from France and it's where I started learning how to ride. The tack there is really not different than here. All you will ever see is slightly different trends as far as colours but thats it.

You want to look for Cubbing Attire or Hacking Jackets or Ratcatcher Hunt Clothes. This is the less formal wear for cub hunting season. Velvet colors are passe for sometime now.

Ratcatcher: Field Members Cubbing
Ratcatcher is required for the field while cubbing.
Coat - A "hacking" jacket of muted pattern and of a weight to suit the temperature.
Neckwear - Necktie or colored stock for men and women preferred, although turtleneck or ladies' riding blouse with neckband or "choker" is acceptable. White stocks should not be worn with hacking jackets.
Breeches - Rust or beige.
Boots - Traditionally brown, but plain-topped black are acceptable. Jodhpurs and paddock boots are also acceptable. Rubber boots, when properly polished, are quite acceptable. All boots, however, require thoughtful maintenance; a rider with clean, glistening boots most often also has clean tack, a well-schooled horse and is a good neighbor in the field.
Waistcoat (vest) - Tattersall. Optional in hot weather.
Headgear -- Caps with ribbons firmly fixed up, bowler or caliente with black cover. Brown is also an acceptable cap color for cubbing or Ratcatcher only.
Gloves - Natural colored leather are preferred. Optional in hot weather. White string are proper on rainy days.

Thanks for all your help guys :) It's way easier to find stuff when you know what it's called. I live in Canada, and there is not much selection here especially where I am so you have to order stuff if you don't want to wear a white shirt and navy jacket and ride in a greenhawk saddle like everyone else.
